I am a forty-something quintessential housewife and gluten free cook currently residing in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with three children. Although, it wasn't always so.
I spent my growing up years in Iowa and Texas. I graduated on the President's Lists from the University of Iowa with a degree in Political Science. I went on to graduate Order of the Coif from the University of Iowa College of Law. After law school, I moved to Chicago where I got married and practiced law for five years. We then spent two short years in Kanas City where our first daughter was born.
It was not long until Microsoft came knocking on my husband's door, and so the move to Woodinville, WA which is on the Eastside of Seattle. Our second daughter was born in Seattle, then we adopted our son from Guatemala.
Our oldest daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2005. After being on a gluten free diet for a week myself, I suddenly felt better than I had my entire life. Subsequent test showed that I carry the gene for celiac disease, but because I have not eaten gluten in several years, the endoscopy is yet to come.
